Reviews

"One of the rewards of reading this book is the restatement of the persistent theme that research of the kind Glaser and Strauss advocate is a thrilling and creative thing. The authors successfully transmit the sense of adventure, the air of excitement and of positive apprehension over what Is discovered as one tracks down the clues and sorts among attractive alternatives." --"American Sociological Review"


"[W]e consider Grounded Theory one of the most important methodological treatises which modern American sociology has produced. It should become required reading for all graduate students of sociology." --Helmut R. Wagner, Social Forces "One of the rewards of reading this book is the restatement of the persistent theme that research of the kind Glaser and Strauss advocate is a thrilling, creative thing. It is not the least bit ignoble or tedious. The authors successfully transmit the sense of adventure, the air of excitement and of positive apprehension over what is discovered as one tracks down clues and sorts among attractive alternatives." --John C. Scott, American Sociological Review "The British Sociological Association recently compiled a list of couses on Sociological Theory and Methods taught at British universities. Reading through this list, one cannot but notice--in addition to the interesting discrepancies between the courses--a notable gap in most syllabi, reading lists and examination questions: any attempt to cover the area between, on the one hand, research techniques, and on the other, the debate on how one can meaningfully relate data and theory. The sociological literature as a whole has little to offer in this no-mans land, and by venturing into it, Glaser and Strauss have made a significant contribution." --S. Cohen, The British Journal of Sociology
